Sherry hogshead 7316 – 49.3%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright copper
Nose: Raisins, prunes, orange zest, dried apricots, polished wood, hints of burnt sugar.
Palate: Raisins, prunes, dark caramel, hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Rather short, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: It has a lovely nose, but palate and finish are disappointing, a rather anticlimactic dram.
Rating: 76/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a bronze medal, re-tasted for notes
